About me

Whatever is going on for you,  counselling can offer you a supportive, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings.  The key to a good therapeutic relationship is openness, empathy and non-judgement; for you to know that whatever you need to say, it will be heard, accepted and held safely.

I'm known to most people as Charlie, and I have worked as a full-time counsellor since 2014.  I am experienced in working with adults and young people, both one to one and facilitating therapeutic groups. My approach is Humanistic, Person Centred.  This approach puts significant emphasis on the trusting, non-judgemental relationship between client and therapist. Enabling you to feel comfortable to share what's going on for you.

We can work together either face to face, (I have the use of two counselling spaces in Barnstaple and in Bratton Fleming) or, if it is more convenient we can arrange appointments online, using Zoom.  I am able to offer some evening and weekend appointments online.

Due to Covid-19 I am currently offering telephone and Zoom appointments only and will review this with clients regularly.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
